5.0 out of 5 stars A TRUE COUNTRY ALBUM FROM A GREAT COUNTRY SINGER 18 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
GIVEN THAT DANIEL O'DONNELL IS MAINLY KNOWN AS A COUNTRY SINGER, ITS SURPRISING THAT HE NEVER RECORDED AND RELEASED THIS ALBUM LONG BEFORE HE DID.

THE ALBUM CONTAINS 19 COVER VERSIONS OF CLASSIC COUNTRY SONGS AND 1 ORIGINAL SONG, "MOTHER'S BIRTHDAY SONG".

IF YOU'RE A COUNTRY MUSIC FAN YOU'RE SURE TO LOVE THIS AS SO MANY COUNTRY GREATS ARE PAID TRIBUTE TO ON THIS ALBUM. KENNY ROGERS ('LUCILLE'), JOHN DENVER ('BACK HOME AGAIN'), GEORGE JONES ('HE STOPPED LOVING HER TODAY'), JOHNNY CASH ('RING OF FIRE') TO NAME BUT A FEW.

THERE ARE EVEN 2 DUETS WITH 2 COUNTRY LEGENDS 'I WANNA BE FREE' (WITH LORETTA LYNN) AND 'CRYSTAL CHANDELIERS' (WITH CHARLEY PRIDE).

IF YOU'RE A DANIEL O'DONNELL FAN YOU WON'T NEED PERSUADING TO BUY THIS AND IF YOU'RE A COUNTRY MUSIC FAN, TRY IT- YOU WON'T REGRET IT!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daniel sings country classics his way 15 Aug 2013
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Brought up in a remote corner of rural Ireland, Daniel has always been a country boy in every sense. Here, he shows his appreciation of country music by singing a selection of those songs in his own easy listening style. The original versions of these songs were mostly recorded between the fifties and the early eighties.

There are two duets here. Loretta Lynn joins Daniel on her classic I Iwanna be free) although it's difficult to hear Daniel when the two sing together. Charley Pride joins Daniel on Crystal chandeliers, a song that is identified with Charley outside the USA, although his sixties recording was itself a cover.

Having learned about the plight of Detroit in 2013, the lyrics to the song Detroit city seem far removed from reality as it is, although they do reflect how things were in the sixties. In a further twist of fate just three tracks later, the mention (in Crystal chandeliers) of marble statuettes reminded me of Detroit's most famous ruin that once served as the city's train station. All very sad, but it shows how songs can take on a whole new perspective with the passage of time.

My favourite recordings here are Back home again, Little ole wine drinker me, Release me, Seven Spanish angels and Oh lonesome me, but there's a lot of great music here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to basics for Daniel 7 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My girl friend is a massive Daniel O' Donnell fan,and just
loves this C.D.As usual, Daniel won't stray outwith the
comfort zone,and does'nt stretch himself vocally,but its
a very nice selection of new recordings guaranteed to please
even the casual listener.Production quality is faultless,and
the winning formula continues."If it 'aint broke,don't fix it",
...and D O' D appears to have the "Easy Listening" market sewn up.
Good on ya,Daniel,...keep up the good work".

We have played it many times over the Christmas holiday and never tire of listening to it.Would definately say that if you like Country Music songs then its really worth buying Country Boy by Daniel O.Donnell

Nice lyrics, etc. Enjoyed listening to the music, and songs, though not quite the Daniel we know and love. Just me, probably,
expecting too much?
